  1. New Front Pads & Rotors

    Yeah no squealing either, oem like bite, and hugely reduced dust. Glad I made the swap to NS400's as well.
  2. Quick question, are the part numbers for IS250/350 LCA brackets same as for the ISF? Edit found the answer: ISF RH 48075-30020 , IS250/350 RH 48075-30050 .. just wondering if the ISF and IS250/350 were the same.. i.e. would the ISF benefit from the upgrade also. Seems there might be a small difference between the ISF and 250, so the difference may not be as notable on the ISF (going to a GSF LCA).
  3. If anyone is interested you can pick up for around $101aud landed at megazip.
  4. Early days with an F - Practical observations

    Lowest mines been is 13.
  5. Swift spring thoughts and experiences.

    Yep I’ll chime in here. Running a 2012 ISF on Swift springs, haven’t done much cruising yet been about a week in. I had a 2009 IS250 with Tein S-Techs before so expected similar characteristics, however what I did find is that with the reduced suspension travel I do feel the bumps a lot more (could be due to the increased weight of the F). It will generally absorb small bumps well and it feels more planted to the ground but small pot holes you will definately feel. I’d say eventually I’ll go with the ohlins RR Racing coilovers due to track work but for now they’re a pretty good road/track set up.
  6. Great stuff blackadder. Yes, Lexus actually uses RACV for their lexus roadside assist service so it'll be just as good as the factory unit.
  7. Nope you don't but if it is still under warranty or you have lexus roadside assist they'll replace with a new sealed battery for free. Or you can call your local motoring association to have one put in (they always carry the Lexus batteries that are approved by Lexus). Failing that just head over to battery world, as supercheap don't stock the exact maintenance free batteries for lexus last time I checked.
  8. Grats on the pick up. She's a beauty. As for intakes that work, look up HPS silicone intake with Afe filter. They're about $220ish plus $70 for filter. There are other better looking ones such as the RR Racing Titanium group buy going on at clublexus that looks mint but it's obviously metal so will have heat soak.
  9. Nah what i meant was I think they already are led sills so you may not need to buy new sills, it's just missing the harness for power.
  10. No mine doesn't light up Sam. I understand there are LED's under the sills though and all it requires is a feed to the door switch (+positive wire), why they didn't hook it up from factory I have no idea.
  11. Hi Sam, the app is called Road Trip. I add the data in after every fill and I use it to track all expenses such as registration, etc. My ISF is stock apart from an X-Force cat back. Purchased when it had around 48k, has not missed a beat at all. If you check out the mileage threads on clublexus forums you'll see plenty of cars there well over 200,000kms with only general maintenance. Being a lexus they are rock solid. I'm on my third lexus now and every single one has been completely reliable.
  12. Bta Motorsport - Tuned Is F

    Mine is stock apart from an xforce cat back, and made 268rwkw (closed bonnet 6th gear pull). Another ISF on the same day made 266rwkw.
